A year ago, St. Matthew switched to a once a month, parent-led, family-based Faith Formation Program (Family of Faith, Sophia Press). All parents, kids, and catechists would meet once a month on a “Super Sunday.” We would discuss the themes of the month, work on a Family Faith Formation scrapbook, and complete activities. The families would then be sent home to teach another lesson later in the month.
The curriculum can be used from 3 years old to 5th grade (there are adjustable activities). We found this program to be very user friendly, great for busy families, and awesome for family building. We will be continuing this program for the 2020-21 school year.
At this point, we will not be meeting in person (due to Covid) but will instead have a kit that families can pick up with all the needed materials. We will then meet monthly via zoom for our “Super Sunday.”
